They really should offer cots or something for everyone falling asleep from boredom.

Neither band has was or will be the same since their respective "greatest asset" has passed. Not to mention the Allmans have always been pretty boring, especially live.

The "scene" is a corpse warmed over and being beaten past an inch of its life.

I wish I could feel differently about it, but really the people who spend money and energy on these sham's must be fooling themselves or something.

Clashcity's right. It's NOT the Grateful Dead. Some people need to stop fooling themselves - probably for their own good.

Of course it's not the grateful dead. It's a group of people who enjoy playing together; and from what I've seen lately, they sound pretty good. If you don't like the idea, that is certainly your choice, but why all the venom up here about this? For anyone who doesn't like the idea, then just avoid posts with clear subject lines about the subject, but respect those folks who at least have a passing interest.

I also have to option of voicing my opinion. I felt compelled to do so because it bothers me so much that this masquerade continues and there's this attitude that if you don't shutup and enjoy it like all the other "kind heads" then you "just don't get it".

That and the Allmans are really just horrible.

Anyway said my piece.

Gabba Gabba Hey.

To clarify, I actually appear to be in the minority of folks around here that like Warren Haynes and I asbolutely love Derek Trucks' slide work. That said, I'd like to see them in their own respective bands (Govt Mule/DTB) or going outside the catalogue of the Dead/Allmanns to liven it up.

Agreed, too. I just feel the whole thing is being packaged as "The Return of The Grateful Dead".
The concert's for a good cause. Good luck to Obama. IMO as a British Marxist (not sure he'd want that) he's better that the oil-loving chimp on his way out, or the gun-toting totty who's trying to get her boss in. BTW did she name her kids after the first words that came into her head?? Why not Laptop, Dog, Lightbulb, Bollocks and Bickershaw?

I wish I could agree, but man I just don't hear it.

Haynes and the Trucks kid are great musicians, but it just goes on and on and on, then ceases to be pleasurable to my ears.

There's no passion in any of this anymore, and has been done over and over. I'd rather listen to stuff 20 years old than some copy.

Sorry for any "venom", but I just find it unfortunate that stuff so medicore or rehashed for the 1000th time is being sold as the next level and people eat it up.

I understand you saying that in context of ABB; what I'm saying is I enjoy seeing Warren w/ Govt Mule and Derek with his band and his wife (Susan Tedechi) when they do their soul stew revival (or whatever they call it). I understand if you don't like those bands as well, but just wanted to clarify that I'm not excited about seeing them do Mtn Jam or One Way Out, but I'd still go see them with their other outfits (and will see Govt Mule later this year).

You know what it very well may be possible that I don't like any "jam" bands other than the Grateful Dead, and more specifically 67-74 with some 77, 82 and 89 mixed in.

I just hear some who likes to hear themselves talk when it comes to Haynes, except he does it with the guitar and doesn't ever shut up.

Can't say I've had too much exposure to D. Trucks so I hold my opinion until that day.

That's how I felt about the latter-day Grateful Dead. For the most part, rehashed mediocrity filling stadiums.

FYI, Jerry did not die - he's the permanent artist-in-residence at Bohemian Grove. The oligarchical elite that run this world keep him there and have Bob and others show up every summer for a few shows at which only they can attend.

You're probably right. All those other musicians should have hung it up after Duane Allman or Garcia died and gotten jobs at Home Depot or something. There's definitely no good that can come of using your talents to entertain people and earn a living after your famous frontman dies. And all these thousands of idiots that come out year after year to see these shows... jeez, what morons. In fact, time should have stopped in in the early 70s, because the Allmans certainly didn't make any music worth listening to, and the Dead were already old and washed up by then.

Get a grip loser.

Ah a witty retort from one of the faithful.

You're right I should step back and re-evaluate my decision not to support wandering bands of has-been's who haven't done anything relevant or new in more than a decade.

gabba gabba hey!

have the Ramones continued? hey?

No one has yet to come close to Jerry's playing.
I go more to people watch & the scene rather than Ratdogs or Phil's "sound". Herring or Haynes never got close-imo.
The Phil & Friends Warfield shows with Trey & Steve Kimock were the best try
